JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Last Friday, the Labor Department announced that only 120,000 were hired last month, which is down significantly from the previous three months.
Despite the U.S. Labor Department's not-so-encouraging report last week about the jobless rate in March, we have some good news to bring you about local jobs: Local companies continue to grow. Here's a look at who is hiring today.
Bank of America has four openings for its mortgage servicing team. It needs underwriters. And, there's still that big need for Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech Therapists all over our area. Other companies like Modis and ADT are also hiring.

And, on Wednesday April 25th there will be a big job fair at the Jacksonville Marriott from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. It's free and open to everyone. This is being sponsored by JobsDirectUSA.
